Hi I'm Sarah

I am a daughter, sister, friend, horseback rider, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love life and learning! I am a college graduate in psychology. I hope to attend graduate school to learn and obtain the skills needed to become a marriage and family therapist. I have an inherent love for animals. I enjoy being outside, listening to music, running, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Russia Moscow Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I am Mormon because I believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. I am a Mormon because I believe that families can be eternal by the sacred ordinances performed in temples. I am a Mormon because I believe God speaks to us today through prophets and personal revelation. I am Mormon because I believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I am Mormon because I find joy and happiness as I read the scriptures and kneel in prayer. I know that God is our Heavenly Father. I know God lives. I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God and that through His Atonement, we can return to live with God. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith restored the fullness of the gospel through the power of God. I know that we are all daughters and sons of God. I know He loves each of His children and knows each of us by name. I know that families can live together forever through the sealing ordinances in the temple. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that it is true. I know that we are guided by living prophets and apostles on the Earth today. I know God hears and always answers our prayers. I know that through the Holy Ghost, the scriptures, and by those around us God answers our prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being kind to others, dressing modestly, honoring my parents and family, following my church leaders, serving in my church callings, trusting in the Lord, keeping the commandments, and appreciating the wildlife and creations around me. It is believed that St. Francis of Assisi once said, "Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary, use words." I do my very best to represent the Lord as a minister of the restored gospel by my actions and words.
